The beginning of the year is a down time for music as weíve only seen a few notable releases so far this year. One of them has got to be Rebelutionís Peace of Mind. Itís a reggae record and with only a couple of songs having any true ties to alternative or rock music, this is true, but itís one of the best of a very small pile.

Peace of Mind is filled with enjoyable but forgettable tracks. There is one track that needs to get a strong mention- thatís ďCloser I GetĒ featuring John Popper on harmonica. That track wonít blow you away, but itís a worthwhile track that Popper absolutely blasts on the harmonica.

Peace of Mind itís a good record and while not every song is great- there are plenty of decent ones. And the record was produced and recorded extremely wellÖ however Eric Rachmaney on vocals has a very odd voice for more than ten songs worth of music. Itís not terrible, itís not even bad, but his voice can just grow weary on a listener after the first few songs.

If you like 311ís mellow side or even the last O.A.R. record youíll love this album. Itís not bad, Popperís guest spot with harmonica is killer, and itís a mellow record to kick back to. Basically listen to this if you like reggae music slightly, avoid it if you donít.
